Her whole life people have been telling her she's ‘particular,’ ‘stubborn,’ and the worst one of all... ‘picky.’
She's so sick and tired of hearing these words and they don’t even describe her.
At first, she never doubted that she was any different than what people were calling her. She knew she liked things a certain way, but she didn’t know how to help it. It's just who she is.
But the word 'picky' isn't the right one to describe her. She's not “excessively fastidious” (thats an actual definition of picky, and it makes her cringe). She doesn't just decide she doesn't like something for the hell of it.
No, that's not her. Her mindset revolves around the idea that she will not do things, or be around people who bring her down. Why the hell would she?
Heres the difference:
She knows what she wants,
And she goes after it…
She doesn’t see any problem with holding out on things until they turn out the way she's happy with.
She also refuses to settle.
She won’t date someone she's not interested in, even if “he’s such a good guy” or “he really likes her.”
If she doesn't like him, she won’t go out with him.
Sorry not sorry.
She won’t keep people in her life if they're toxic. She doesn't care how long they’ve been ‘friends’, if she's being treated like shit then that's the end of the friendship. Point blank, period.
She knows that no one is perfect. She knows everyone makes mistakes and that all good things are worth fighting for, but she also knows what she wants in her life. She won’t accept any relationships that are not beneficial to her and she won’t put up with toxic people.
It doesn't bother her that she won’t have as many friends, and she’ll be single a little longer. She's more than happy to have a few quality people in her life than a high quantity of low quality ones.
So yeah, she knows what she wants. She has goals, she has standards, and she has expectations for herself and for the people she chooses to surround herself with.
She won’t allow anyone to make her feel unworthy or unappreciated.
And if that's what makes someone “picky,” then hell yeah she's picky, and she's damn proud of it.
